How do I create a practice course sandbox - to explore and practice with new materials

Dear Canvas Community,

First of all, thank you for your support.

Here is my question: How can I create a practice shell?

* Currently I would like to explore the possibility of uploading supplementary resource materials from the publisher of our course textbook. 

* But, I want to avoid any clutter in my Canvas curriculum.

* Can I upload these materials to a  practice shell to see if the quizzes, assignments, activities match up with the needs and skills of my students?

* With a practice shell, I would be better able to examine the materials myself.

Please let me know.

Thank you for all you do.

Hello there, @jlewenstein ...

You may need to have a conversation with your school's local Canvas administrator or someone from your school's Online Learning/eLearning department.  They would be able to tell you if they would be able to create a separate "sandbox" course so that you can explore and practice new things while not disturbing other courses that you have access to in Canvas.

I hope this will be of help to you.  Let Community members know if you have any other questions...thanks!
